"NAMO TASSA BHAGAVATO ARAHATO, SAMMA SAMBUDDHASSA.... !! "

 Worthy, honorable & perfectly self-Enlightened is the Buddha!
Consummated in knowledge and behavior, totally transcended,
expert in all dimensions, knower of all worlds, unsurpassable
trainer of those who can be tamed, both teacher & guide of gods
as well as of humans, blessed, exalted, awakened & enlightened
verily is the Buddha.... !!

Dearest Friends @ CAS,
 
How often have we had the misfortune to witness ( some ) Buddhist scholars' masterful slicings of the subtlest intricacies of the Buddhist philosophies whilst unforgivably stumbling then tripping when questioned about the Life of Lord Buddha ..... ??!!
 
Painstakingly compiled for weeks, then, below, are some of the most beautiful and touching collections on the Life of Lord Buddha, literally, from around the globe.
 
With deepest homage to our Enlightened Lord,
 
bb  & all beings @ CAS
 
p/s:
This kick-starts the first issue of CASonline's offering of the collected teachings of the Buddha --
